    I envy you. Nice place, warm, fruits/vegetables/meat/wine. Girlzzzz!!! Relaxed and friendly people. City as a village - 2-3 fllors max out of center. Rectangular net of streets. 2-2.5 hours to the sea by car (both Black and Azovskoe). 2-2.5 hours to Mocow by air, ~10 flights a day (other flights - to SPb, Surgut, Mirny, Chelyabinsk, Sochi, Nizhnevartovsk, Tashkent, Istanbul)

    I live in Krasnodar...plenty to do down here...we also have an English club which is free where all the expats meet and all those who want to practice speaking English...so a good way to meet people(especially English/Americans etc)...we are going to karoake on sunday for example...krasnodar has the black sea and mountains down the road and yes good wine and food. the traffic though is akin to moscow.

    I recommend you either Red Royal (ul. Krasnyh Partizan, center) or Premier (a bit distant, Vasnetsova) hotels, of my experience.

    they meet officially every 2 weeks on sundays...if you are on facebook you can become a member there and see when they have things on.

    but i am sure plenty of people would be happy to show you around. I even know this aussie who works right in the centre on krasnaya ulitsa next to the boulevard ( Shut up Andy :P ). krasnodar is quite a beautiful city but it is spread out a bit and with the traffic things need some planning...i am still learning where everything is myself. but there is a LOT to do within a few hours drive of the city, of that you are spoilt for choice.

    Good. Sundays dont work for me untill the end of the year cause am going to come there only on weekdays in November-December.
    But if there is anybody here ready to show me the city - I'll be very glad.
    And I ll check the link.
    Thank you dear

    Well i am often free during the day(work evenings from 6-9 or 6-10) and centrally located so if you want a free tour over a long lunch drop me a line...also my russian teacher is the best tourist guide who is responsible for the preservation of all the old buildings...so he can give you quite an interesting tour with me(free of course).

    there are two aussies, one kiwi, half a dozen brits and more than a dozen americans here in krasnodar...i know most of them though a few russian language students at the unis i don't know. but i am sure we can keep you busy.

    I wanted to write that I know one American who lives somewhere around Krasnodar, I have met him on Twitter but I see that you know everybody.

    I will remember about you, if I had to go to Krasnodar
